I CAN'T EVEN WATCH THIS IT IS SO HORRIBLE

I know this is hard to watch. I'm sure the majority of people would rather not see this. But I'm haunted by this. I can't even watch the whole things because it makes me cry. It is undercover video by PETA showing monkeys that are being used to test products and drugs!

I recently read an article talking about the results of the animal rights protesters by these companies. They simply move their operations off shore to places where there are no rules about animal cruelty. These poor terrified animals suffer even worse and are treated worse in these third world counties and are suffering more than here. When they stuff these animals full of drugs, they let them die a slow and painful death... I'm ashamed of the human race.

We have become monsters....

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.


Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.


When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

Emotion ends.

Man becomes machine.



A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.



FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.

SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.

sushil,
Thanks for the thoughtful comment. I am really struggling with this. You are right, sometimes it is just easier to block it out and not think or feel about it. I don't really know what to do about it. I know that animal testing saves lives of humans, but there seems to be no limits to what we will do in the name of science. The look on this little monkey's face haunts me... I feel horrible, I know that.

Thanks again...
